Rush, rush, rush is the name of the game these days. Or as Rihanna says….work work work work work….am I right?

Most of my days include some combination of the gym, work, class, working on recipes, and endless amounts of studying and homework. Even though this is not everyone’s schedule, I KNOW you are all just as busy as I am.

One of the most important things to me is to have healthy snacks ready to go. When I start to get hungry (which happens just about every other hour) I need to have something available. When I’m not prepared I end up grabbing something I normally wouldn’t eat or enjoy, or I starve. And then I come home and eat six times my body weight in dinner. Viscous cycle.

Thats where these little snack balls come in handy. They’re quick and easy to make at the beginning of the week, and small enough to throw in your bag each day. They are sweet, but filled with healthy fats and protein and are able to hold me over for a while.

In addition to the chocolate, you could add whatever you want. Dried crans, coconut, whatever you love. Get snackin!

    I will definitely try this. Some days I have no idea when Or if I will ever be home. This seems like something I can make and keep in my work bag to grab in case of emergency or just when I need a little something to hold me over.
